This is something I've dealt with many times.
Generally I try to preserve any software and delete data. Right now to
give an idea, I aquired over 60 boxes of 8" disks with both. I will not
go into the several hundred 5" disks and handful hard disks.
I treat it as simply this, if I read it and it's not software I forget it.
I have other things to do mostly.
